I Star Eye - I Produce My Track cover a DIY infrared LED point model, because I believe it is the most reliable method, but this can work with as little as a webcam and a printer for giving it a shot.
Most webcams will work, though higher FPS webcams are way, way better. The cheapest, fastest webcam is a PS3Eyebut the third party Windows drivers are no longer free from legitimate sources.
If you're using an IR point model and not a visible light or your face, you'll probably also want a filter to reduce visible light and let IR light through. People have reported using floppy disks and exposed film negative, but I just snagged some lighting gels and stacked red, green, and blue.
This is enough to let me use my IR model with a sunny window directly behind me, without any modification of the webcam. I use a simple piece of 1" PVC with a few cuts from a hacksaw to hold the filter in place. Easy, cheap and lets me remove or replace the filters with no fuss. This is the part that always seems to throw people off building their own, but is really simple. The PointTracker settings page gives a pretty straightforward view of the geometry of both clip and cap models, as well as what measurements are important.
The Running Free - Iron Maiden - When Its Time To Rock can be anything, but the defaults listed work very well if Star Eye - I Produce My Track make your model based on those. Getting started, I'm partial to the clip since it can be cut Melting Ice - Las Kellies - Total Exposure of whatever is around the house, but I've found the cap style more reliable.
If you have access to a 3D printer, there are a fair number of clip options around. I personally prefer a cap model that I put on top of my headphone band - I have fewer problems with occlusion or reflections from my glasses. Once you have the physical frame constructed, it is time for the LEDs. The simplest and most straightforward way is outlined over at the FreeTrack forums, here.
I use the 'Serial' build with a 6. If you're just experimenting with head tracking before buying anything else and you already have a webcam, you can use a .O Corpo É Que Paga - António Variações - Anjo Da Guarda tracking panel similar to a very very simple QR code with the Aruco plugin. The OpenTrack wiki will walk you through that - you're just using the Aruco plugin instead of the PointTracker plugin.
Basically, you print out the panel on any printer and gluestick it to a paper plate, cut it out and stick that on your forehead.
First and foremost, change the 'Tracker Source' to PointTracker 1. Input the camera settings and measurements of your model. I use x 60Hz with my PS3Eye, and the model measurements will depend what type you built. One last thing in the PointTracker configuration is the calibration. This tells PointTracker how far offset the light points are from the center of rotation for your head. The OpenTrack Wiki has the detailed calibration instructions.
The final thing we want to change is the Filter settings. Your filter should be set to 'Accela' by default, so click the configuration button next to that. For the PS3Eye with cap model, the best settings I've found are here.
This configuration is all going to be done under the large 'Options' button in the lower right. Camera tab: If your camera is anything other than directly in the center of the screen, you may want to enable and change the 'Camera angle' settings. Pitch is negative if the camera is pointing up to your face from below your monitor, positive if mounted above. Camera yaw is positive if positioned to the left of your screen and negative if to the right.
Roll will most likely be zero or 90, depending how you have the camera mounted. For example, I have my camera mounted directly above the center of my monitor, pointed down a little bit towards my face. My pitch in the camera angle is '10' - if I had it sitting on my desk, it The Worlds Leading Dance Event (The Anthem 2002) - Various - 100% Dream - Music For Your Mind Vol. be ''.
Relative Translation tab: 'Enable' checkbox under the Relative Translation area at the top. This is also where you can set an offset to your neck pivot so the camera moves more naturally to your eyes, but I find it to be way more hassle than it is worth. OpenTracks's default curves suck, but can be viewed with the 'Mapping' button in the lower right.
Also, curves are an intensely personal preference, and almost everyone I know has different settings here. That being said, the general purpose curves I find to work acceptably for both single monitor and triple monitor are pasted below.
He says that it works plug and play, no third party drivers or external filters required. When it comes to a DIY clip I'd really recommend not going for Star Eye - I Produce My Track battery powered version, it's power hungry and depending on the gels you use over the webcam you can easily find them losing tracking without fresh cells, plus the battery pack is heavy and a little awkward.
Remember as well that if you just want something that works out of the box there The Willows - My Angel / Do You Love Me (Shellac) excellent 3-point-clips sold by Delanclip and TrackHat. They both actually sell prepared PS3Eye cameras so you can grab everything you Star Eye - I Produce My Track to start using headtracking for much less than TrackIR.
I say it again and again, but TrackIR is genuinely better than these solutions but it's pretty overpriced for something released 8 years ago. The freeware versions are great for situational awareness but not quite up to scratch for things like aiming with gimbals, there's too much latency and the tracking is not as robust as with TrackIR's hardware. Delanclip and TrackHat are both pretty cool, I didn't realize people were making these commercially.
With regards to latency - have you tried recent versions of OpenTrack, especially after tuning the Accela filter a bit? The defaults had a little latency, but after tuning it's completely imperceptible to me. Also, completely agree on the battery powered version - just don't even bother, especially with how many USB cables and wall warts everyone has laying around from old cell phones or printers. I've not done any latency tweaks because I got TrackIR several years ago.
Back then with Opentrack and Freetrack I had issues aiming with gimbals because the latency had me constantly overcorrecting and getting TrackIR felt like a marked improvement.
I guess I can't be sure now without a proper A-B test on it. If you can show us some aiming when 2. I've never used head tracking for aim, Star Eye - I Produce My Trackand my curves reflect that - it's for looking around and following targets and avoiding asteroids. What curves do you use in TrackIR for gimbal aiming? Maybe I can try to translate it in and give it a shot when 2.
It's a very simple one right now using the Freepie mouse emulation workaround. I might ramp up the edges a little if adding TrackIR means looking further to the sides or behind you but I'll keep it linear otherwise. For what it's worth, I've just gotten pretty satisfactory response with the OpenTrack built-in mouse emulation, mostly default settings with lowered sensitivity and mappings, the same accela filters as in the OP.
I don't notice any delay or latency. Not something I'm comfortable vidcapping since I've not practiced more than a few minutes with it, but it does work and doesn't seem to have latency. Thats like a 1. As someone who runs a home made set up off of a battery, I disagree with it being power hungry. I run a single AA battery, and I can get about 25 hours of use before it's drained enough to noticeably affect pickup performance. Do you use speakers or a wireless headset? If someone is already tethered by a headphone wire, adding another for the LEDs doesn't really change anything.
I've got a headset or 3. All plugged in, most of the time. The next thing that tethers me may be the thing that breaks the camel's back. Yeah, I have my USB power run up right Star Eye - I Produce My Track my headphone wire, tied together with spiral wire wrap.
I have a separate wire for headphones, my Delanclip and my Antlion modmic. It's looking a little crowded right now but isn't particularly awkward. I agree with not using a battery. I made a DIY 3 point model with 9V one and it still starts to dim enough for the camera to start having problems tracking it annoyingly fast.
I just went back to EDTracker. Works fine on both. It's major shortcoming is that it only had 3 DoF, tough one can simulate 6 by Tep Proti Tobě - Gnu - Album Epochal assigning its axes Star Eye - I Produce My Track multiple outputs.
It only has 3 axes because it uses gyroscopes and magnetometer backup. It's pretty precise, though mine requires some gyro bias adjusting occasionally. It's an older model.
I'm not sure what kind of crazy PS3Eye setup you had, mine works perfectly on Star Eye - I Produce My Track standard camera with a RGB filter clamped to the front, on the 'wide' setting, mounted on top of my center monitor.
It works great out of the box, no 3rd party drivers. High resolution, high framerate, no blurry hack job filters. It's a bit pricier than a PS-Eye, but it definitely works great. Oh, that is niiiice. I don't think it existed when I wrote v1. I used that and without removing the PS3 eye's IR filter.
